The Pailolo Channel On Canvas

Both of these paintings are by a woman named Kim Starr, formerly of Hanapepe, Kauai and currently of Washington State. She has a keen eye and ability for capturing the colors of Hawaii's tropical water. The view in the paintings looks like Pailolo Channel, the rough and windy stretch of water between Maui and Molokai.

Pailolo translates as "crazy fisherman" in Hawaiian.

Simply wonderful, but I'm a sucker for paintings of the ocean...actually anything ocean...and why don't I live by the sea you ask...not sure about that one, maybe the money thing...ha!

I'm with ya on the beautiful burl woods of the Victorian pieces, I cringe when people hire me to paint theirs, fortunately(or unfortunately) it's mostly the old golden oaks they paint. I don't have any of my painted furniture in my home, I love the woods too, however, I have a few old painted pieces.

Wish you could see Manleys', their shop is wonderfully displayed, LeeAnn has the best eye and everything is cleaned and polished.

Have a great day!

The detail that has gone into the shallow water by the figure's feet is amazing. Really special paintings. It's a good artist who can make the difficult look effortless.
